    Once every as often as desired...
    ... which has been 9 years since the last full bike.

    There hasn't been anything that gets the ol' wang cannon as excited as the last bike, so until someone comes out with something more fun or Shimano finally make good on their patent for 14 speeds and disk brake standards actually become that - a standard, then I may end up buying an even faster motorcycle than the last one. Maybe I should just change the front sprocket so I can get 100mph in 1st rather than just a piffling 96.

    For my first road bike purchase, the parameters were pretty simple. Get a bike that fits, doesn't break the bank and is sturdy enough to withstand rookie mistakes. A Cannondale Synapse that I still use around half the time. For my second bike, I wanted something that I really liked the look of and was really different than the first. Having my gear range preference and something built for speed was also important. I picked a BMC TMR02. I use it heavily in warmer months and put it away in the winter.
